Meredith's Review:
This is the second series I've read that is written as short "episodes." I have to say, while these don't by any means take the place of a full-length novel, I really do enjoy this format. I like that I get a pretty complete story arc in a book I can read easily in one sitting. I like that the focus changes a bit in the story in the subsequent books, but continues to follow characters you've grown to love. And of course selfishly, I feel good every time a finish a book, so with the shorter serial novels I finish a lot more of them!

I am a sucker for superpowers, so I was drawn to this series. I'm an even bigger sucker for the "less than super" heroes and heroines. Meet Tessa-the ONLY member of her family without powers. That's gotta hurt. The non-special one, the ordinary child, the anything-but-extraordinary. Nothing is expected of her and everyone pretty much thinks she incapable of taking care of herself. Not an easy life for a teenager. Some have parents that push too hard, but Tessa experiences the opposite. 

The first book really starts off with a bang. It draws you in from the first paragraph and keeps you turning the pages with non-stop action. I wanted to know why they were running, who Dennis Connolly was, what really happened to Tessa when she was eight, and why her father was suddenly getting headaches. The author doesn't disappoint, slowly unraveling the story to keep you on the edge of your seat. 

The love interest, Tristan, is great. I love the way they meet, the way they bond, and the closeness they develop (even though Tessa tries to avoid caring for anyone due to her circumstances). Secrets and all, I adore him and want them together even in the worst of times. I believe in you Tristan! 

This series is a fabulous, edge of your seat read. There are plenty of curve balls thrown at you along the way to shake things up. I was trying to think of the best way to describe Clara Kensie's writing and her website says it all:

Check this series out, you won't be disappointed. 

About the Author
Clara Kensie grew up near Chicago, reading every book she could find and using her diary to write stories about a girl with psychic powers who solved mysteries. She purposely did not hide her diary, hoping someone would read it and assume she was writing about herself. Since then, she’s swapped her diary for a computer and admits her characters are fictional, but otherwise she hasn’t changed one bit.
